Google Spotlight Stories, Interactive 360-degree films to YouTube

“Google Spotlight Stories is a new form of storytelling made specifically for mobile and VR. In these 360-degree, interactive stories, your phone becomes a window to a world all around you. The sensors on your phone allow the story to be interactive; when you move your phone to various scenes, you are able to unlock mini-stories within the story. Look anywhere, follow individual characters, watch it over again and again on your phone or in Cardboard. If it makes you smile, share it with a friend.”

Tips for Google Maps

google maps iconLast week Google announced offline maps from Google Maps for areas selected by users .

At the moment this option is only available for Android and it seems to me that there is still much to do.

Some questions:

By downloading these maps are these downloaded to the internal device memory or to the SD External Card?

Would also be great to give the option to user to select different route options, as well as whether to use highways or secundary roads, should also enable the selection paid or entirely free courses.

Expose your ideas to improve the application .
